Staggering pictures show China's Dead Sea has turned BLOOD RED
The Yuncheng Salt Lake is an ancient lake around 500million years old and covers 120 square kilometres.
It is located in the north China city of Yuncheng, Shanxi Province.
The red-hue that the lake has turned, isn’t the result of a horrifying crime, but a natural result of algae in the water.
Organisms called dunaliella salinas turned red after a rise in temperature and light intensity.
Although it looks rather unusual this has happened before in other countries.
The phenomenon has previously been seen in France, the US, Turkey and most recently in Iran.
